Here are three more quatrains from the UPLift group on Facebook. These little poems tackle some serious and heavy subjects.
THE ISLAND HEAVED
The island heaved, and Haiti fell,
The country thrown on hands and knees;
In face of death, the fearful swell,
While aid arrived across the seas.
Man wants to play and rest,
To work five days seems bleak,
He cannot do his very best,
Obsessed with the end of the week.
IF ONLY YOU HAVE FAITH
If only you have faith to stretch
Beyond the moment’s pain,
On your soul His grace will etch
The joys that must remain.
